Sunday Sevens – Week 57

Hi everyone, it’s time for this week’s Sunday Sevens, a little ode to randomness, those bits that don’t merit a whole post. For info about Sunday Sevens, please pop in to see the creator, Natalie, over at Threads & Bobbins. There are no real rules, just sharing of seven(ish) pictures.

So here we go with today’s Sunday wrap up.

First of all, the very best of all things is happening. My sister arrived on Wednesday with our 89-year-old mother! Sis has gone home, but mom will be here for 3 full weeks! In light of this, my blogging might be extra light, but I do have some fun pics to share. This week most of the photos were taken on a day of wine tasting at the Finger Lakes. I didn’t even know these wineries existed! The skies were overcast but no rain, the leaves are turning, so much greenery…all in all, fabulous!

Wine Tasting

First stop

This was a bustling place, some good wines, and a very nice concierge who directed us to Glenora Winery, 10 miles down the road which offers a good restaurant.

Second stop

This was the most fabulous place! Overlooking Seneca Lake, magnificent views of the color show put on by all the foliage. We didn’t go to the wine tasting room, just the restaurant where we indulged in pumpkin soup and a sandwich. Oh yes, and an incredibly decadent carrot cake with caramel and “Parisian” ice cream. Pure joy.

Bottle Tree

This festive tree is in the lobby. Clever, don’t you think?

Third (and final) stop

The final stop was a very small winery on the opposite side of the lake. Wine wasn’t special, but the views were!

A Pretty Mistake

Misdirected roses

We had a package delivered to our doorstep. It was addressed to the previous owner. We called the delivery service, and they promised to contact the sender, and said “keep the flowers”. Yes, thank you.

Keeping the Walks Going

Little sculpture at the corner nearly covered by these pretty little daisies.

We set off to pick up a newspaper just around the corner, but….

Ooooh, scary neighboring tree

do we dare pass this skeleton-laden tree? We did! Two days in a row we walked to the market and picked up the newspaper. Unscathed. Such troopers.

Have a lovely week everyone!
